Hi all I'm wondering if on the real thing these compartments are hinged some how
Image
After adding this detail the other bit fits over the top like this
Image
There are handles at the bottom of the outer shelving I'm wondering if I can some how make the parts hinged to show all the detail, there is loads of shelving like this and it would be a shame to hide all the detail.
Yes I could just not glue them so they are removable but I would like to try and make them as they are on the real thing.

Hi all here is the next update, I would really love to add lighting to this but can’t find leds small enough.

It’s a good job I’ve not glued the cab on yet as I’ve missed some painting

Hi all here's another update, I thought I could improve this bit so I cut the moulded on straps off and made some of my own

Image

Image

Then I thought to myself I can improve on that too.

Image

I do think my bench is getting quite full (and this is not all I'm working on)

Image

Here's an assortment of the accessories so far made for this.

Hi all well thanks to Eddie Mc Vea and his pics here is the next update, I've added the missing cap holders to the hose clamps

Image

Image

There is actually loads of missing detail from this bit and I'm not sure I have the skill to add it but I may try (see if I can work up the courage)
